So now the laundry room looks like this:
It also looks like SOME people have decided that various boxes, and yes, even Tonka trucks belong in the laundry. If I find those things in the washing machine, I bet you'll hear about it!!
Are you wondering, as I am, just how long it will take to sort out that laundry into manage-able piles about the size of a load?
Or perhaps you wonder, as I do, exactly how many times I will be loading up my trusty washing machine this week?
Or maybe you want to know who is going to hang it all to dry, shlep it back inside after, and then fold it?
So many laundry questions to ponder...
During the rest of the year, I usually go down there every couple of days to "check" on the laundry. We have a 10 kg washing machine (Love it!) and I like to run full loads. So when I have enough for a load of laundry, in it goes, and then I hang it on my drying racks. This house did not come equipped with a clothesline, but luckily we purchased these awesome, handy-dandy folding drying racks with tons of space and stowed them on our lift.
They look a lot like this, only we actually purchased them at Ikea. (Sorry, the current Ikea catalog does not seem to include them. So, Israelis, you may be out of luck. But those of you in America can just order them - free delivery - from Amazon , and you'll be air drying your clothes in no time, whether or not you have a clothesline!
Have I mentioned that air drying our clothes helps keep our electric bill down? I won't say manageable, because it's all relative. We started air drying clothing when we live in Florida, and got the shock of our first electric bill there in the summer. It was either give up A/C or give up the dryer. We gave up the dryer, and I don't really miss it! Try it out, let me know if you've considered giving up your dryer...
